• IMPACT Wrestling Stars Take Shots At RAW Underground

Shane McMahon introduced RAW Underground for the third hour of WWE RAW this past Monday, where worked shoot fights take place. The idea was introduced in an attempt to boost the ratings of the show.

While some fans liked the idea, some didn’t. Several IMPACT Wrestling stars didn’t like the idea as well.

IMPACT Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo was involved in a banter with new IMPACT signee, Kimber Lee, over a Title match.

IMPACT Wrestling commentator Josh Matthews, who previously worked for WWE, said that they should do it at “IMPACT Underground”.

“This one might need to be settled on #IMPACTUNDERGROUND Jk Jk #IMPACTonAXSTV”

Another former WWE star, who recently signed with IMPACT, Karl Anderson, said that he doesn’t want to see anything of that sort.

“Please, For the love of God, anything but that ..”

IMPACT Co-Executive Vice President, Scott D’Amore also responded to Mathews’ shot at RAW Underground and wrote:

“I expect this from @THETOMMYDREAMER or but not a corporate VP or @IMPACTWRESTLING Welcome to the don’t give a F gang! This tweet might just win the night! This tweet might just win the night!”

Matthews responded:

“I did say “JK JK” ? ? ? ? #IMPACTonAXSTV”
